About three months ago, we announced that dozens of new features have been released to Mailmeteor. We didn’t stop there. Since then we have made huge improvements, including the release of the auto follow-ups. If you haven’t tried it out yet, please go check it out. It’s massive.
Apart from the follow-up, we have made dozens of improvements to Mailmeteor. Let’s take a few minutes to look back and see what the team brings to all our users:
- Insert images into your emails
- Are you ready for lift-off?
- Follow-ups new features
- Recommended for Google Workspace
- Building a safer Mailmeteor
Insert images into your emails
GIFs, photos, invitations, canvas… now it’s easier than ever to insert an image within your emails. Just click on the image icon then drag & drop your image:
That’s such an essential feature that we’ve implemented for our editor. Our WYSIWYG editor is now as best as the one you can use in Gmail. In fact, under the hood, it’s the same editor.
For the most curious of you, Gmail’s editor uses an open-source framework codenamed the Google Closure Library. Since day 1, we wanted Mailmeteor to be 100% compatible with Gmail’s drafts. That’s why we decided to use that editor.
Thing is, Google Closure - even if it supports the most ambitious products of Google (e.g. Gmail, Google Maps, Google Docs, etc.) - hasn’t been broadly adopted. So, it lacks documentation and experts outside of Google’s engineers.
Well, that didn’t scare us away. We just reverse-engineered Gmail’s editor to understand how they made it before implementing this feature. The result looks stunning and there’s now one more Google expert in Google Closure.
Are you ready for lift-off?
You might have seen that sending emails from the Dashboard has just been made a lot cooler. We’re delighted to offer an iconic animation to all our users. Here’s a sneak peek for those that haven’t seen it yet:
Sending an emailing campaign is sometimes seen as a stressful experience. Some people tend to check all the variables countless times, making sure everything looks great and failproof.
It’s part of our DNA to make sure your sending experience is reliable and trustworthy. With this iconic animation, we now hope it will also be delightful. Do you like it? Let us know on Twitter.
Follow-ups new features
With the recent release of the follow-up, we received great feedback from many users that the team implemented right away. It includes:
- Detecting replies and bounces in real-time!
- Automatically canceling a follow-up when a bounce is detected
- The option to manually cancel a follow-up (if you changed your mind)
